Ceres is following the guidance and requirements of the health departments of Sonoma and Marin counties, the state of California, and the CDC.

Founded in 2007, Ceres Community Project works to build healthy communities by restoring whole, organic, and locally grown food to its place as the foundation of health, empowering youth, and connecting people in heart-centered ways to others and the earth.
Ceres Community Project’s main program, Healing Meals for Healthy Communities, provides free and low-cost nourishing organic meals, nutrition education and caring support to people facing serious illness. All of the meals are prepared by teens that learn about growing, cooking, and eating healthy whole foods and the connection between diet and health, develop life and work-ready skills, and discover their power to make a difference. The Healing Meals Program improves healthy eating behaviors among clients, teens and adult volunteers and educates the whole community about the link between healthy eating and the health of both people and planet. It also strengthens the social fabric of the community, another factor that is at the root of health. In times of disaster, Ceres is an emergency nutrition provider for our community.
In addition to operating three program sites in Marin and Sonoma counties, Ceres has trained 12 communities nationally to replicate our model. We are also active at the state and national level in advocating for policies that support equitable access to healthy food and health care, including reimbursement for medically tailored meals by insurers.
